If there was ever a year we take UFO sightings to heart, it would probably be 2020. As it turns out, there was a recent report of a UFO sighting right here in the Northland.

According to the National UFO Reporting Center, a Duluth resident reported seeing an unidentified object in the area over the summer. The exact date of the sighting was August 16th.

The reporting party says the UFO sighting lasted between 15 to 20 minutes and was circular in shape. Not only that, but according to the website, there were not one but three "separate, consecutive" sightings at the time, with "yellow circular lights gliding at continuous speed across the night sky."

The sighting happened at around 9:15 p.m. that night. Here's how the resident described the creepy encounter:

Saw a bright light gliding across the sky, much too low to be a satellite, going northeast direction. After viewing an actual satellite go by, another bright light glided by, except this one I noticed traveled below the clouds. I compared their size to a glowfly normally seen from a few feet away. No blinking, constant continuous yellow light (like warm stars) and gliding motion and speed, moving in the same direction. Then another one went by, this one more towards the north, less east, prompting me to come in to see what these could be.

Wow! Minnesota seems to be a hotbed of sorts for extraterrestrial activity. Around the same time of this sighting, several Minnesotans spotted a mysterious fireball in the sky. We will see what the rest of 2020 has in store!
